More Power

Hi all,

As I come from a 6cyl back ground with my weekend car being a 300zx twin turbo, to going to a sexy 2.0l TS GTV feels rather gutless.

So the question is: What do you guys do to get a little bit more out of the 2.0l TS?

Thanks

Sell and buy the V6?

No really, like most N/A cars bhp is expensive, and beyond cams and extractors it only gets worse ($).

Have a look at this for inspiration:

Ps. I dont think they enjoyed the corolla joke, or anouncing you're an ex nissan driver.

yea I still got the nissan... I spent to much effort on it to get rid of her.

glad you appreciate that sort of thing. It's a 1990 model with no silly body kits or over the top rims.

I'll upload a pic or two when I jump on the computer

Yeah please do.

Is she short or long wheel base?

Hard to find good ones these days that haven't been ruined with Veilside bumpers and big wings.

Long wheel base

I think the best kit for this car is OEM with the mudflaps painted like mine

Lovely mate - damn I LOVE the 300zx. Always great to see unmolested ones.

If I didn't have to run client friendly cars I would love to find a nice low mileage SWB twin turbo.

The design was so ahead of its time when you consider it was late eighties.

Have you seen the legendary 'turbo-zee' advert that aired when the car was launched stateside?

Love it!

Right, will stop hijacking your thread now. Sorry! Thanks for posting the pics buddy.
